Technology & engineering


The workshop focusing on the technology and engineering section of the fashion-tech methodology is divided into two: with a broad focus and a narrow focus, thus being suitable for students with different levels of previous background and experience related to the field.


The benefits of organising and carrying out workshops for teaching and learning fashion-tech are following: (1) enabling a practical section to introduce available technologies; (2) enabling a practical section to introduce and practice the development process; and (3) enabling a problem-based learning and solution-oriented approach.

Within both workshops, a theoretical basis of the fashion-tech field will be offered, consisting of fundamental knowledge of smart textiles, wearables and digital technologies. Furthermore, practical insights will be provided through informing the students about existing prototypes and practical applications.
